Texas Tech introduces new “tap and go” mobile ticket scanning system

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech will introduce a new “tap and go” mobile ticketing system beginning this weekend when Red Raider Baseball hosts Texas Southern in a three-game series inside Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.

All baseball tickets will remain mobile but will not utilize a QR code for scanning moving forward. Instead, fans will place their downloaded mobile ticket near ticket scanners that will be located at the entrances to Rip Griffin Park. Each scanner will identify each mobile ticket wirelessly, allowing for quicker entry into the venue.

Fans with multiple tickets will need to swipe horizontally to each ticket and tap it near the scanner for entry. Texas Tech will have gameday staff available near each entrance to assist fans with the new system.

Screenshots of mobile tickets will no longer be accepted at baseball moving forward in order to further protect ticket holders from scams or counterfeit purchases. Fans needing to transfer their tickets can do so online via their TexasTech.com account or by utilizing the official Texas Tech mobile app. For further instructions on how to transfer tickets, please visit here.

The “tap and go” scanning system is only being implemented at Rip Griffin Park for now with the goal of utilizing similar mobile ticketing scanners at other venues beginning next fall. Texas Tech will continue to utilize a QR code and its original mobile ticketing system for all remaining men’s and women’s basketball games this season.

The Red Raiders open a stretch where 11 of 12 games are at home starting Friday when the three-game set against Texas Southern begins with a 2 p.m. first pitch. The two teams will also play at 2 p.m. Saturday before closing the series at 1 p.m. Sunday afternoon.

Single-game tickets for each Texas Tech home game are still on sale and can be purchased online at TexasTech.com or by calling 806-742-TECH.
